Good or Bad: Should we be wary of work friends?
In this week's lighthearted Good or Bad debate, we explore the difference between friendly colleagues and colleagues that become friends. Should your work pals be privy to your secrets and after-hour shenanigans? Or should you keep your private and professional lives compartmentalized?
For insight, Shad checks in with two debaters:
- Humourist Henry Alford, who writes about modern manners for the New York Times, says friends and colleagues are different beasts.
- Freelance writer and Workopolis employee Elizabeth Bromstein says friendships can flourish under harsh office lighting.
As always, we're asking you to unapologetically pick a side. Send us your opinions and anecdotes — we may end up reading them on air.
